Love Live! have gotten pretty popular over the years. After the success of both seasons of the anime a movie came out. The movie is a completion of the story. Its what happens after the ending of the second season. *spoiler alert: If you haven’t watched the anime stop reading*. Muse decided to split up since the seniors are graduating… that was the whole story of season two. The movie is about how they spend their time together before the seniors graduated. Honoka decided that they should do another love live! since that was the reason they formed their group. *End of Spoiler* The movie was very entertaining. We got to see different sides of each character. There were new songs which was very cool. Also their trip for New York was pretty fun. Specially how they were struggling to speak in English. Overall the movie was a good idea, it didn’t change the outcome of the story but it did give the fans what they wanted. If you have watched Love Live! this movie is a must.

Overall Rate: 8/10
